The ANZ Rewards Black Credit Card with 80,000 extra Reward Points

If you love being rewarded – and if you especially enjoy treating yourself to prestige perks – the ANZ Rewards Black card could well be worth a closer look. Designed to offer higher points earning power than standard rewards cards, this high-end option has plenty going for it.

From its awesome travel-related benefits to its excellent introductory extra Reward Points offer, this card can give you it all. But is it right for you? Let’s find out.

What we love...

When talking about the features we love on the ANZ Rewards Black card, it’s hard to go past the introductory extra Reward Points offer. How does it work exactly? After you spend $2,000 on eligible purchases on your new card within three months of card approval, you will be rewarded with 80,000 extra Reward Points to spend as you like. The extra Reward Points will be credited to your ANZ account within 3 months of the eligible spend criteria being met.

As part of the ANZ Rewards Program, these points can be redeemed on a huge range of items, on anything from travel and entertainment, to gift cards, cash back and more. And if you don’t have enough points to cover the item you want, simply make up the difference in cash.

Additionally, you could redeem the 80,000 extra Reward Points for $350 Gift Card from Bunnings, Woolworths, Myer, David Jones, JB HiFi, Coles or Kmart.

Love travel? Choosing the ANZ Rewards Program can be a great choice for cardholders who want to earn points on travel, but who don’t want to be tied down to a particular airline. With ANZ Rewards, you can choose to fly with any airline to any destination, whenever you want to travel.

To top it all off, this card waives its annual fee for the first year- giving you an opportunity to pocket a whopping $375 savings on card costs. This is a perfect opportunity for new cardholders to enjoy all the awesome features and benefits this card has to offer without spending a hefty amount on card fees.

What’s not so great...

When it comes to cards packed with features and offers, there is always small print to pay attention to. With the ANZ Rewards Black card, it’s worth bearing in mind the ample annual fee you’ll pay after the first year, as well as the relatively high rates of interest on purchases and cash advances.

And while the card does allow for up to nine additional cardholders – which can provide a handy way to earn points faster – each additional cardholder will cost $65 per year.

Why should you choose this card?

While the introductory offers certainly provide lots to love, you may also quite enjoy the other features the ANZ Rewards Black card has to offer.

In terms of points earning potential, the card lets you earn 2 Reward Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases up to $5,000 per statement period, and 1 Reward Point per $1 spent on eligible purchases above $5,000 per statement period.

As a cardholder, you can also enjoy access to cashback offers when you shop with your eligible ANZ card through Cashrewards Max at participating retailers. To join, simply sign up online for free and link your ANZ Rewards Black credit card. The cashback you earn will appear in your Cashrewards account and you can choose when you claim the cashback and how you use it.

The card also comes with a range of complimentary insurance covers - International Travel Insurance, Domestic Travel Insurance, Rental Vehicle Excess in Australia Insurance, Extended Warranty Insurance, and Purchase Protection Insurance.

On top of that, it provides up to 55 days interest-free on purchases, and compatibility with Apple Pay®, Google Pay™ and Samsung Pay™.

Hi This card have offer the primary no annual fee for 1st year . How is the secondary card in the 1 st year ? thank you Jason
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    18 May 2022
    Hi Jason, we checked the ANZ Rewards Black card’s terms and it does not say that the first year for additional cardholders is free or zero. However, it states that the $65 annual fee already includes the $10 fee for the additional card and $55 Rewards Program membership. These fees are for every card added, up to 9. You can check ANZ’s official terms and conditions PDF for more details.

I am currently a secondary cardholder for my wife's ANZ Rewards card. Do you know if I can apply for a card in my name if I will qualify for the 1st year free and bonus points? Is it possible/feasible to transfer points from my wife's card to mine? Trying to figure out if it's worth the hassle to open a new card to avoid annual fee for a year, which we've only just had to start paying due to changes in home loan.
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    19 April 2022
    Hi Trev, as you are a secondary cardholder any spending done by you is the responsibility of the primary cardholder to pay back. If you haven’t been the primary account holder on any of the ANZ Rewards cards in the market in the last 12 months and meet all other offer eligibility criteria, then you should be able to take advantage of the points offer. It turns out that ANZ have this form on their website that is for transferring points between family members. Keep in mind the ANZ Rewards Black only has a $0 annual fee for the first year and then it goes up to $375 p.a.

    Hi Jenny, this will depend on when your application was submitted and approved. You’ll need to call ANZ on 13 13 14, as they will only have access to your files.

Hi, if I use ANZ reward black creditcard to pay for my council rate, electricity and water rate, do I still get reward point?
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    1 February 2022
    Hi, sorry to bear bad news, but I checked ANZ terms and it states that reward points will not be earned for payments for rate notices. There are other cards though, like American Express, that have a points earning feature at government entities at a lower rate. You can use our comparison tool to see how many points you might earn, and check out a range of credit cards that earn rewards on government payments.

Hi I currently have an ANZ Rewards Platinum credit card account, does this exclude me from being a new customer for an ANZ Rewards Black credit card account and receiving the Bonus Points?
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    17 January 2022
    Hi Tina, I checked on ANZ’s terms and it states that the offer is not available to those who currently have or have held ANZ Rewards, ANZ Rewards Platinum, ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures, or ANZ Rewards Black credit card in the past 12 months. You can check our comparison tool if you are interested in other cards that offer bonus points.

Hi, Pauline, if I do Bpay to pay my Plumber with this card, does this count towards to 180000 points? Plumber chargers 1.5% for credit card payment. Thanks is advance.
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    6 January 2022
    Hi Si, if you’re paying your plumber with the BPAY option this may be processed as a cash transaction and earn no points. However, if your plumber does take “credit card” then you might earn points for the transaction. This entirely depends on the way your plumber has set up his payments system. If it is in fact BPAY only, check out our guide to BPAY and credit cards. Happy points hunting!

    Hi Eddye, welcome to Australia! ANZ New Zealand and ANZ Australia will have different credit criteria to apply.

Will every purchase made on the card (eg groceries, rent, fuel etc) be eligible for QANTAS points? Just wanna get a handle on the "eligible purchases"
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    6 January 2022
    Hi AJ, there’s no specific list of what transactions the bank will tag as ‘eligible’. However, ANZ’s terms indicate that transactions like interest charges, fees, cash advances, or any cash equivalent transactions are considered ‘not eligible’. You can check out our guide on how to earn points with your rent to learn more.

Are ANZ Rewards points different to ANZ Frequent Flier points? Also, is there a minimum period on these cards? (I.e. can I cancel before one year is up)
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    7 December 2021
    Hi Andrew, good question! Both are 2 different rewards/loyalty programs - ANZ’s very own Rewards program, and the Qantas Frequent Flyer program that ANZ’s partnered with. You earn points on either and the number of points you earn depends on what transaction/s you make and for which rewards program. We’ve written complete guides on ANZ’s Rewards program and Qantas Frequent Flyer that you can check for more information.

Hi, How long will approval take? when does the travel insurance commence, Approval/Card Activation? can you share more details on the included travel insurance product
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    24 November 2021
    Hi Evan, the approval process actually depends on several factors like credit-worthiness, income, debt serviceability, documents submitted, etc. Banks also have other criteria that are not published that they may require as well. As for the travel insurance, the period coverage starts from the date shown on your international travel ticket up to 6 months from date of departure. Please note that you need to meet their insurance eligibility criteria first in order to be covered. You can check ANZ’s insurance T&Cs for more information. Safe travels!

    Hi Navneet, you’ve come to the right place as we are a credit card comparison site. Though we can’t suggest one card over another, there certainly are a lot of cards with different offers. Depending on what you’re looking to use the card for, whether it be rewards or everyday spending, it’s best to check our comparison tools for the list of credit cards we have curated to see what suits you best. It’s also very important to check the card’s eligibility criteria and its TMDs before proceeding with your application. Happy card hunting!

Hi Can you please tell me the ANZ rewards points is the same with Qantas point?
    Pauline - CreditCard.com.au

    Pauline

    12 November 2021
    Hi Hue, ANZ Rewards points are different from Qantas points from different programs. To add to that you can’t transfer ANZ points to Qantas, only to Velocity, KrisFlyer, Asia Miles and Airpoints. If you are however looking to directly earn Qantas points, you can check out the different Qantas Frequent Flyer cards we have listed for your options. Hope this has helped!

    10 November 2021
    Hi Mitul, we dug this for you and found that the period cover for the international travel insurance begins on the date you become eligible and covers you for up to six consecutive months of your trip. Please keep in mind that you first need to make sure that you meet the insurance eligibility set out in the ANZ premium cards insurance guide. There’s a few hurdles to jump to have it activated so check the guide carefully.

    28 October 2021
    Hi Mousa, we checked the ANZ Rewards Black credit cards terms and if you closed your card less than 12 months ago you will miss out. But, if it was more than 12 months the offer is available to new and approved applicants.

Is 1 reward point = 1 qantas frequent flyer point?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    22 October 2021
    Hi Alex, sadly no. ANZ Rewards points can’t be transferred to Qantas. ANZ Rewards points can only be transferred to Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Velocity Points, Cathay Pacific Asia Miles and Air New Zealand Airpoints Dollars. You could technically transfer to Cathay Pacific and then to Qantas, but the inherit value would be lost there. If you’re still looking for a black ANZ card that earns Qantas points directly you could check out the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black Credit Card.

If I sign up, are the bonus points credited to my account immediately after the spending $2000 on eligible purchases? What do eligible purchases include? What can I use the bonus reward points for?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    15 October 2021
    Hi Pete, the bonus rewards points will be credited to your ANZ account within 3 months once you hit the required spend. Eligible purchases are what you’d spend in your everyday life. So for example your groceries, dinner and entertainment. It doesn’t include cash advances, interest charges or gambling transactions to name a few. Full exclusions are listed on the ANZ site. As for redemption of points, you can redeem them for a wide range of gift cards, cashback on your statement or transfer to airline partners for travel. Here's a guide to the ANZ rewards program that you can browse to find out the full details of the program..
